look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - A very pale yellow with a lingering finger of white, frothy head.

S - Smells strongly of yeast/wheat, green apples, and white grapes.

T - This one is only mildly tart. Reminds me of a tart lager.

M - Medium-light body; not very carbonated.

O - A good beer but not one worth hunting down. I prefer the American BW's which seem to be a bit more tart.

Bottle poured into a tulip

a: hazy straw yellow with looks to be lots of carbonation. Large head that goes away

s: kinda of sour, some funk, straw, slight barnyard smell which isn't off-putting

t: sour lemon and lactic acid, some sweetness

m: tart, bubbly with a dry finish... enjoyable on a hot summer afternoon

I like this beer and wish to try more in the style. This is refreshing in the heat.
